New Line Leader LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Philly's Line Leader recently shared its new, full-length album, Houses of Water. One enters a multifaceted, mysterious, head-trippy, musical mission. An array of sonic textures creates a fluid, ever-evolving atmosphere - one that floats in a dreamy manner at one moment and then transitions into a more volatile, urgent heaviness in the next. That unpredictable, shape-shifting nature compels the listener to remain alert around each and every bend. (Photo by Kayla McCaney)





Cape Chacon's Memories Make Good Music

Cape Chacon’s first release, Doing My Best, is endearing and relatable in the best way possible. Listening to it reminds you of every skinned knee you got during the summer as a kid. The vocals are beautiful, grounded firmly in each note sung. It has the feel of young adults shaking off the skin of teenage apathy, realizing that feeling earnest and genuine isn’t a bad thing.

It isn’t all sweet either, despite the upbeat pop style. The album is full of a uniquely gentle resentment. Do you remember the first time you tried to eat a bubble, only to discover that the incredibly tempting shine was really just bitter and soapy? That’s the feeling Cape Chacon is singing about, especially in songs like “save me 4 l8r.” However, there is hope in the album as well. After all, the band describes their music as “indie rock that's kind of like when you forgot your pencil in sixth grade but ur bff had an extra.” Sure, there’s panic and despair, but there’s also a friendly hand there to help you out.

New Slingshot Dakota Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Heavy Banding, the new album from Slingshot Dakota, recently arrived via Community Records, Specialist Subject Records & Stiff Slack. Keys and drums unite to create a constant, thumping heaviness. When coupled with Carly Comando's affecting vocals, the message is unquestioningly delivered. The duo continues to be an undeniable, sonic force coming out of the Lehigh Valley.





New Instupendo EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Boys by Girls is the new EP from Phily's own Instupendo, a.k.a. Aidan Peterson. Absorb the ethereal, electro, dream-pop ambiance. Those minimalistic beats, balanced by lyrical emotives, creates a weightless yet alluring collection of recordings. Instupendo will be performing next in Philly on Saturday, July 6 at Kung Fu Necktie, along with NYC's Glassio and Brisbane, Australia's Golden Vessel.





Blossom LP Release

Last week, Blossom released her newest LP, Maybe. It’s a beautiful reflection on what the mind can do when left alone. Blossom makes fever dreams feel spine-tingling and sultry. She has great command over her voice, delivering each word succinctly and powerfully. As the months get hotter, we’re all going to get more and more grateful that she’s released this album in time for summer. “Betty Rizzo” is an especially alluring song, which makes sense given its namesake. It’s one that will probably bring more than a few bodies to the dance floor.

Blossom will be having an album release party for Maybe next Monday, June 10th at the Armory. She will be joined by Butter Baby, DJ Dubblife, Fountaine, KayelaJ and Bocha.
